Ultrasone HFI-580

 

Surround Sound? No so much, but this is an excellent pair of stereo headphones.

Fine for all types of music, particularly genres with deeper bass. Smooth low-end. Adds a twinge of brightness to an otherwise flat response. Solidly constructed.

Surround-sound effect sounds a lot like stereo. Large and bulky.

The real "bang for the buck" headphone

 

I purchased this pair about 2 years ago, when I just got to the audiophile world. I remember reading a thread the ATH-M50 and HFI-580 with a lot of different opinions, so I decided to test both. The local shop provide me 2 sample of the headphones,...

Tight, controlled bass; average mids and high; isolation; bright soundstage

Long ass cord; the cushion is not durable; can be uncomfortable

Quite good for trance

 

I used during several years a DT 770 Pro 80 ohms on a iBasso D-Zero and wanted to go for a change and more mobility, they are easier to place in a computer bag, compared to the DT I appreciate to have more mediums, bass is good but not dominant, after...

clarify, sounds nice and bassy enough

better for small hears, confort

Makes all types of music enjoyable. I don't know of a better value for headphones.

 

Music sounds great with these. They are a little heavy, but I knew that when I bought them. What I did not know was that they make great ear warmers. This is good for winter, but may not be so good in summer. I'm quite happy with them. They don't seem...

Music sounds great even from poor sources without an amp. It sounds even better with better source and amp

Heavy. Makes ears hot in the summer

Perhaps one of the best "bang for the buck" basshead can

 

Sound: For their price they are probably one of the best basshead cans out there. While I find my Beyer 770 Pros sound overall somewhat more "refined" the HFi580s clearly beat em in bass rendition... Comfort / Build Quality: I'm not a big fan of...

Great bass / Not too expensive

Pleather pads / Looong straigt fixed cable (I prefer removeable or coiled cables)

Great for the price

 

These are my first pair of over-ear headphones, and my "nicest" pair of headphones before this were some 30$ skullcandy earbuds which at the time sounded amazing to me. I can't do much comparing to other sets of cans but I can say I am completely...

Bass, isolation when music is playing, attractive, decent sound quality, very comfortable

lacking mids, ridiculously long cable

HFI 580 Review

 

On the overall these headphones crush the likes of Beats and other headphones endorsed and made with DJ's. They're a LOT cheaper too. Bass is tightly tuned and sounds awesome without being overpowering. On the upside, the sound produced is not...

Tight bass, sound, stylish, folding aspect

comfort, can be a bit tinny, long cord
